About the Module

The purpose of this session is to learn best practices in the bid process. To do so, every event owner and host in the situation must understand what the other is looking for.

This module begins with two panels; one for event owners and the second with three city representatives. Each presenter will discuss what they are looking for, how they present their story, and the reasoning behind it all.

Following these presentations, discussions, and questions and answers, a case will be presented. Participants will be divided into small groups to discuss the case and decide on the most important elements.

Small groups will then be asked to report on their recommendation to the class.

Each participant will be asked to submit a brief paper on the implementation of lessons learned.

This module marks the last of a series that began in April 2002.

Our first online module, due to roll out in January 2016, will be the first in the revised CSEE course of study.
